I would have never thought that within two years I would encounter two cases where parents were appealing for help to save their children suffering in SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy). In summer 2017, one of my former primary school classmates drew my attention to two twin girls who had this genetic disorder. At that time we, Hungarians living in Ireland could contribute to the cost of their medication with a significant amount. I keep following the facebook page of little Aliz and Zoé and it fills my heart with joy to see how they are improving. That is why I thought I would make an appeal again - this time for another beautiful little angel, Noémi.
The atlatszo.hu website noticed an interesting post on facebook.The special accredited ambassador of Hungary got into an uncomfortable situation. A Hungarian citizen wanted by the Hungarian police for several charges of fraud took part on an event of the Irish-Hungarian Business Association, presided by Mr. István Pálffy at the Embassy of Hungary in Dublin. Mr. Pálffy is a diplomat and a former news anchorman. A European Arrest Warrant has also been issued against the man whom Mr. Pálffy was posing with in 2015. The man was posing on a photograph of the Irish Hungarian Business Association with the ambassador. The photo was published on Facebook, however it became unavailable by Thursday.
In our days people are most of afraid of such terrorist organisations as Al Qaeda or its offshoot, the Islamic State. The terrorist attacks of these organisations requiring a lot of victims justify our fear. What is the reason for such hatred towards the Western world? How can terrorism be stopped? The book of Marc Sageman and my studies tried to find answers to these questions.
The terrorists of the Islamic State have killed 89 people in November 2015 on a metal gig in the Bataclan theatre in Paris and wounded hundreds more. While this was the biggest mass shooting in Europe since the dissolution of terrorist organisations in Europe and Canada, in the USA mass shootings still happen quite often. The perpetrators are not only of Islamic origin.
